Winter Walk by John Clare
The holly bush, a sober lump of green,
Shines through the leafless shrubs all brown and grey,
And smiles at winter be it eer so keen
With all the leafy luxury of May.
Gorgeous spires of self seeded Delphiniums at the lovely Swinton Park estate in North Yorkshire, the walled garden has been allowed to run riot… these were shot on a hot day, and what should have been too sunny for photography turned out to be rather nice for these electric blue flowers…
